727 in a CJ

I Bleew Up My Tf 999 For The Third Time So I Bought A 83 Wagoneer And Took The 727 Out Of It It Runs Fine But I Am Concerned About How Close The Front Driveshaft Is To The Bottom Of The Trans Pan I Am Running A 4 Inch Lift Plus A Small Shackle Lift Anyone Hane Issues With This Or Is It Not Going To Be A Problem When Flexing.

it will beve a very tight fit to clear the front drive shaft. my friend and i had to build a two piece drive shaft to clear the pan with the dana 300. great tranney's ( the 727 ) but the jeep model found in the waggy's are not made for pass side drop. this is why the triple 9 ( 999 ) works so much better. on the flip side the triple 9 we have in a rubicon has the same problem but on the drivers. the front shaft is a pieace of 1.5'' .188 wall and its about the only thing that could fit without hitting the pan when it gets dented/bent, jason.

I have a 360-727-300 combo in my jeep. It was installed by the PO so I dont know what was involved. I know my front axle is moved 2" forward. Not much help I know but at least you know it can be done.

Having full width axles moves the driveshaft over to the PS, away from the pan.

i have factory axle set 30 front 20 rear. i have not flexed it and my transfer is not clocked. i was running a 1 inch transfer drop but removed it to gain a little extra clearence. plan to flex it soon just need the snow to go away for a few days.

If you have stock axles, you're not 'Full Width'. That term is used to describe using much wider truck axles in a Jeep.
I ran a 727 in my CJ with a 4" lift. I too was concernced about driveshaft clearance, and wound up notching the transmission pan. Worked great, but I couldn't clock the tcase the way I wanted to, and wound up swapping in a 999.
